Kenny Nowling was waiting in line to cast his ballot at Liberty High School in Lake Saint Louis, Missouri, when a man he was talking to suddenly collapsed.
Luckily, an off-duty police office and his wife, a nurse, along with the assistant vice principal of the school immediately jumped into action.
Nowling told the school district he was speaking with another man waiting in line to cast his ballot Tuesday when the fellow voter “suddenly collapsed,” Fox News reported.
The off-duty cop and his wife immediately saw the man. They began performing CPR on him while another person went to find a defibrillator. Thanks to Assistant Principal Matt Kiesel, who was on campus to ensure election officials had everything they needed, ran in with a defibrillator.
The collapsed man slowly regained a pulse and was taken away as soon as paramedics arrived.
“Thank you to the Lake Saint Louis police officer, his nurse and angel of a wife, and Dr. Kiesel for acting so calmly and methodically and saving this man’s life,” Nowling later posted to Facebook. “You are the real-life SUPER HEROES! What a perfect time for all of us to remember that, regardless of our political affiliations, we are all human beings living in the greatest country in the world.”
Nowling added Wednesday that he heard the man is in the ICU but is stable.
